WhiteHat Security Announces General Availability of Sentinel PL for Vulnerability Management for Pre-Production Websites

New "PreLaunch" Sentinel Product Speeds Vulnerability Identification and Increases Security by Offering Whitehat Security's Unique Verified Vulnerability Assessments for Websites Prior to Deployment

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2011) - WhiteHat Security, the Web security company, today announced the general availability of WhiteHat Sentinel PL (PreLaunch). The enterprise-class SaaS solution provides website vulnerability management to customers prior to site deployment, surfacing vulnerabilities earlier in the development process and strengthening website security at launch, while lowering security-related development costs. Sentinel PL joins WhiteHat Security's growing service line. Recently WhiteHat acquired Infrared Security's static code analysis technology, complementing WhiteHat Security's dynamic technology and offering customers a complete website vulnerability assessment solution from one company to cover the entire SDLC.

When combined with other WhiteHat Security services -- WhiteHat Sentinel Premium Edition (PE), Standard (SE) or Baseline (BE) -- Sentinel PL delivers ongoing vulnerability management and protection in both pre-production and production environments. With the announcement of WhiteHat Security's recent Infrared acquisition, soon customers will be able to incorporate static code analysis into their WhiteHat Sentinel website vulnerability management program. This end-to-end solution will provide the industry's only SaaS-based vulnerability management solution that can evaluate code in development, prelaunch and production websites.

"With recent high-profile breaches/events putting even more pressure on companies to increase website security, Sentinel PL adds another option to improve security earlier in the SDLC and reduce risk," said Bill Pennington, chief strategy officer at WhiteHat Security. "Sentinel PL has been extremely successful in beta testing and we're excited to announce its availability to all our customers and any company looking to improve their security processes."

By assessing pre-production websites prior to deployment of live code and employing a faster, more aggressive testing methodology, Sentinel PL reduces overall remediation costs while reducing risk before the site is exposed to the world and potential security threats. Sentinel PL leverages the same cloud technology platform as the entire WhiteHat Sentinel product line and is designed to provide vulnerability data specifically relevant to development and in a time frame that works with modern development cycles. As with the entire WhiteHat Sentinel family, every vulnerability discovered by WhiteHat Sentinel PL is verified for accuracy by the WhiteHat Security Threat Research Center (TRC), ensuring only legitimate vulnerabilities are identified and reported to developers for remediation.
